The classic pixie cut, as seen on iconic movie characters

The pixie is one of the most intimidating haircuts. This may be due to how society relates femininity with having long locks. Around two months ago, I finally decided to have my hair cut to the iconic style. Like most people, I was worried I'd look like a boy, but decided to push through with it---and I'm so glad I did. I don't know why, but there's something highly empowering about having my nape and shoulders exposed. Instead of beauty trends, I was actually inspired by characters from some of my favorite films. Contrary to what you might think, the pixie is very versatile and can be classy or edgy, depending on how you style it.If you're planning on getting a pixie haircut, let ...Keep on reading: The classic pixie cut, as seen on iconic movie characters.....»»

Is Mother Lily Monteverde really turning 80 tomorrow? Regal Films' beloved matriarch does not seem to age, because she never slows down. She spreads her joie de vivre around so well.

Meet the ‘Crazy Rich Asian’ women

LOS ANGELES---Among the actresses in "Crazy Rich Asians," the first Hollywood movie with a predominantly Asian cast in 25 years since "The Joy Luck Club," the casting of veteran Lisa Lu is significant. The esteemed Chinese thespian is in the cast of both movies. Lisa, who played An-Mei (one of the mothers) in "The Joy Luck Club," has been our friend and colleague for years in Hollywood.

‘Crazy Rich Asians’ spurs conversation over representation

NEW YORK --- The upcoming release of "Crazy Rich Asians" has a lot of Asian-Americans excited because it's been more than two decades since a major Hollywood studio put out a movie with a predominantly Asian cast. They see it as a win for diversity and representation. The movie is a romantic comedy about a middle-class Chinese-American woman who finds out her boyfriend's family in Singapore is, well, crazy rich. But some critics have pushed back, saying the movie centers on already well-represented parts of Singapore and ignores that country's minority communities. The Warner Bros. release comes out Wednesday. It's directed by Jon M. Chu and includes Asian-American act...Keep on reading: ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ spurs conversation over representation.....»»
